- Jun 18, '11 by asmah232003umm guys nobody is talking about the Financial aide. Am so glad we got accepted! but one question how much scholarship did you recieve for CNR? i only recieved 8,000 for the year! which is to me really bad because i rialzed on their website it says 8,000 per semester. I would really prepfer dorming but its insane to pay 18,000 for one single year..so how was your financial aide?? i cant wait to see everyone on aug 18th for the orientation
- Jun 18, '11 by IrishJohnHey,
Did you apply for financial aid ? (FAFSA, TAP). I applied early, becuase my income was not that great due to being laid off from my job, as well as having a daughter, as well as donating a majority of my/my daughters things that we no longer needed to a few charities in need made my income very low. (add my mortgage interest and property taxes).
I also read online where it said to file as early as possible, so I did so. My school was covered thanks to a couple of grants and the maximum loan amounts I could take, and about 10% out of pocket.
The Fafsa website (if you applied) would send you your efc (estimated family contribution). This is the amount that if all goes well, and the info you provided when you applied is fasfa is verified and approved by the school you are good to go. Take the paperwork or email from fasfa/tap and go to the financial aid office. The staff at the financial aid office at CNR was incredibly helpful and went over everything with me. I'm guessing you applied for aid becuase you asked about it, if you included cnr's school code when you applied they should have everything. i would call and make an appointment, and if you didn't apply, I would go to fafsa website and do so right away. Hope this helped, I kind of didn't understand your question fully.
- Jun 19, '11 by asmah232003i did apply for FAFSA..and they offered me some $$. Am talkin about the CNR scholarship, i was only offered 8,000 for the whole year which is 4,000 per semester. Was that how yours was? because with a lot of people i heard its supose to be 8,000 per semester. My GPA is 3.3..so i dont understand why they are giving me the 4,000 per semester. you understand?
- Jun 19, '11 by IrishJohnYes, I received the same amount, but was told it was $4k per year. The advisement counselor confirmed that back in November when I first applied. I have to check the website to see what it says, but yes, I'm at a 4.45 and received $4k per semester
- Jun 19, '11 by asmah232003thats wierd becuse a friend of my got 8,000 per semester. I was reading this on their website :

So if my Gpa is above 3.0 why shuld we be getting the 4,000? are you planing on commuting or livng on campus? in fact am so confused i will have to call them to clarify it. Even on their website theres no scholarship that offeres 4,000 per semester ..
- Jun 19, '11 by IrishJohnI see exactly what you mean. Is your friends gpa higher than yours ? I'm wondering if it's the higher the gpa as a transfer student, the more scholarship you receive. It also says maintain a gpa over 3.0, which looks like it means you must stay above 3.0 while attending cnr itself. Would love to know what you find out, is your friend also a transfer student ?
- Aug 3, '11 by asmah232003Ok so all my financial aide issues got resolved! am only left with a balance of 1,000.. but one more question..are guys guys ready for the TEAS EXAM?? what are you doing to get prepared for it??..am so nervouse!
- Aug 17, '11 by dannipointHi everyone. I'm interested in applying to CNR for the spring semester 2012. I have a 3.9 gpa.... have finished most of the prereqs except college math, computers, and stats. I have retaken 4 classes and received A's in them. I am working on my application and essay right now as well as my transcripts. I am a transfer student with 41 credits..... do you think I have a shot at being accepted into CNR's generic program? It looks like a beautiful school and I went to a catholic high school and grammar school so I am used to the catholic aspect of education. If anyone could provide me with any information I would really appreciate it. What was everyone's gpa? Prereqs completed? I'm also a little concerned with the financial aid...... I hope it covers a majority of the cost. I applied early like in march. Maybe I would be eligible for scholarships too. I'm thinking positively. Also another q...... I am not able to apply online so Iwill have to turn in a paper application.... does anyone know if there is a fee for that? Thanks so much and congrats to everyone who made it in for the fall of 2011 !!
- Nov 3, '11 by dannipointI was accepted into the college of new rochelle for spring 2012. I received a merit scholarship for 10,000 for the academic year. Just waiting on financial aid to see what else I am eligible for.

what program were you accepted into? The traditional or accelerated program? I am just looking into the College of New Rochelle, I am curious if they are very difficult to be accepted into? I live in NYC and it is brutal here to be accepted into a program. any info would be great...I have a bachelor's of science already.
